Electrophilic Selenium Reagents: Addition Reactions to Double Bonds and Selenocyclizations

Pp. 8-60 (53)

Jacek Ścianowski and Zbigniew Rafiński


Addition reactions of electrophilic selenium reagents to the double bonds, selenocyclizations, and their stereochemical aspects are described. The synthesis of electrophilic organoselenium reagents, including optically active examples, the formation of new carbon-oxygen, carbon-nitrogen, carbon-carbon bonds, and applications in the synthesis of heterocycles are presented.


Addition, Electrophiles, Selenides, Oxyselenenylation, Azaselenenylation, Carboselenenylation, Asymmetric Synthesis, Cyclofunctionalization, Heterocycles, Stereoselectivity.
